Need some help:surrender:

I have a 2000 jeep wrangler, 5 speed that is leaking coolant from underneath. It looks like it is coming from on top of the starter. I checked what freeze plugs I could see, and they looked fine(could only see 3). I disconnected the inlet and the outlet hose that go into the fire wall to make sure it wasn't the heater core. I can smell anti freeze sometimes while I'm driving, but no puddles inside the jeep. Please please please help before I pull my hair out. Thanks for the help

I was told that if I dis connect the two hoses that go into the box and the leak stops, that it's the heater core. I did that but the leak continued. Someone else told me it was a freeze plug?????

Eject the warp core then seal the explosion with a tacheon burst from the deflector dish.

The air box and heater core holds lots of coolant when you have a heater core leak there is a box drain tube right above your starter even if the heater core is disconnected and bypassed if you park on hill or move the jeep around coolant will leak from the drain tube. I just replaced mine during the summer was disconnected for 2 months still had some resisdule leakage from the air box. when you remove the box to replace the heater core wash it out good you will be amazed how much mud and gunk gets in there when you off road.
